The Skinny: Lehigh Valley, PA-based experimental / alternative rock quartet, Aniqatia, are getting ready to digitally release their new, 5-song EP, Luminous, on March 11, 2016 via Nefarious Industries and today you can stream the entire affair RIGHT HERE! We’ve partnered with the band – which includes Chris Navatier (guitar, vox), Josh Beck (guitar, vox), Jared Balogh (bass, vox), and Nicholas Fritz (drums) – and are thrilled to help share this advanced listen of their new work. (Advance preorder bundles including a shirt, prior EP and the new EP are available RIGHT HERE.)

Said the band of the EP: “During the writing process for Luminous, we pushed each other to play outside of our comfort zones and tried different approaches for composing songs. It showcases our more experimental side, with both our most aggressive and most melodic material to date. The end result is five unique tracks that offer listeners a variety of sonic landscapes, so Luminous has a little something for everyone to enjoy.”
